Paska isä

You come in and ask if something is wrong. The porridge is a bit burnt, I reply. This experimental documentary is a personal narrative from the point of view of a stay-at-home dad. The film represents a new father’s viewpoint as a sort of an outsider in the process of giving birth and having a child. The anxiety, desperation and an overdose of family life are illustrated by the use of animated scenes. Though the father and his emotions about fatherhood are in the main focus, he stays in the background as a narrator.
